Top Safety Accreditation for Aurora Pro Clean

Aurora has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

Employing 120 people, Aurora is principally involved in the serviced offices sector, specialising in industry leading commercial premise and office cleaning across London and the South East.  Starting as a small company operating in the City of London, Aurora has achieved rapid growth across the UK, to operate in other major cities such as Basingstoke, Milton Keynes, Reading and Bristol. Aurora is now a pioneering company in the sector, achieving a vast client base from small start-up offices to multinational companies and public sector clients.

The company’s application for Safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.

Commenting on the accreditation, Aurora Director, William Rodriguez said: "Our staff are passionate about the environment and we have dedicated ourselves  to a CSR policy that is consistent throughout our brand. Using only biodegradable and carbon free products, we have also trained our staff to deliver an exceptional service whilst considering the environment; for example using less water, and sourcing energy efficient equipment.

"We pride ourselves on our professional staff and the high standard of cleaning and customer service that we deliver that makes us stand out from our competitors."

Safecontractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.

Safecontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contracted services.

John Kinge, technical director of Safecontractor said, "Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place."

"More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that XX has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.

Safecontractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”

Under the Safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.

Client-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.

Over 210 major, nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
